OH BOY MERLIN. You have not only got one of today picks, you have also got active poster on your diary. Well done my sweet and wonderful big boy, I am so proud of you. I am so proud that so many peoples hearts have been touched by you my boy and have shown you and I such amazing kindness. Dogster has restored my faith in human nature. On behalf of my boy Merlin I would like to thank everyone for their wonderful kindness. Thank you all.

We had a storm last night with thunder and lightning, poor Spud was scared stiff. He kept jumping at the door to get out, but there is no where he could go to get away from it and if he had got outside he may have run off and we would never find him again. I called him over and tried to reassure him, Molly got jealous and jumped up on my bed. I called Spud to the side of the bed and rubbed his chest and scratched him behind the ear, he gave me his massive paw and I felt that he was shaking like a leaf. I really felt sorry for him, its such a shame that he is so scared of thunder and lightning.

Hopefully (fingers crossed) your mum gets her new car soon. It will give her peace of mind, well not only her but me as well. I got fed up hearing what was wrong with her Land Rover.

I guess its time Merlin that you went and played with your buddies my sweet and wonderful big boy.

I love you so much Merlin and I always will.

Your ever loving Daddy.

 

Good morning my sweet and wonderful big boy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful big boy, I hope that you are having lots of fun and games with your buddies as well as Lady Zara, Lady Girl, Monty, Sara, Judy, Scooby and of course your daughters. Help look after them my boy.

Its quite a nice day today, nice and bright and sunny and no wind. I think it will be nice and warm once the sun gets overhead, so it should make a really nice run and play day for you. Molly and Spud they rarely stop playing, well play fighting. I really don't know where they get the energy from to be honest. After a little while Molly comes inside for a drink of water, then goes outside and attacks Spud! Oh boy what a puppy she is. Joking I said to your mum that I wanted to get another Merlin so that he and Molly could have a litter of GSD's and then keep them all. I got the evil eye. So I suppose that's off the table.

Your mums Land Rover is running OK now that the ignition lock has been cleaned out, but I will be glad when she gets her new car, it will be a lot cheaper to run plus she gets peace of mind which is priceless. She is always waiting for the Land Rover to break down and when it coughs or something she gets into a panic, like the other morning we had heavy rain during the night and when she started the Land Rover it began coughing and only running on 5 or 6 cylinders instead of 8. She went into a blind panic, but after a few minutes the engine dried out and began running on all 8. Not only does she get peace of mind, so do I!

I guess its time for you to go play and have some fun my boy with your buddies.

I love you so much Merlin and always will.

Your ever loving Daddy

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful big boy, I hope you are having a great time, because you deserve to.

Today is very over cast, I guess its about 8/10th cloud cover, so its a bit chilly this morning so whether it will warm up later is anyone's guess.

A locksmith came yesterday and removed the steering lock on your mums Land Rover, he took it all off in about 15 minutes flat! He had to go back to his workshop to take the lock apart and remove the broken part of the key, cut a new key then come back here and refit the steering lock, to put it all back again I suppose took him about half an hour. I was dreading taking it apart myself as the instructions in the Land Rover workshop manual makes it sound very complicated. I was so pleased the Land Rover agent suggested getting a locksmith to do the work, it saved me a heck of a headache.

Molly is laying beside me being as good as gold. This morning when I woke up she took one look at me and came bounding into the bedroom, jumped up on my bed and really snuggled in close to me. She really is a sweet little girl Merlin she is so full of love, well except for most of Melissa's cats, she loves chasing them all over the house except for one, a sweet little black and white cat. For some reason they really like each other, its really nice watching them interact.

I guess its time for you to go play with your buddies and have some fun.

I love you Merlin, please never forget that OK?

Your ever loving Daddy

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful big boy.

It doesn't look to be a very nice day today, very cold and overcast, but thankfully no wind. We did have a thunderstorm earlier which made Bella bark her head off. Spud, Hobo and Molly don't bother barking, but Spud is absolutely terrified of thunder, he shakes and shakes and I feel really sorry for him. I give him a cuddle but he still shakes. This morning he was so sweet, he came to say good morning to me. This is what I mean about Spud, at times he really is a sweet boy, yet other times I could strangle him. That boy is one heck of an enigma.

Your mum has done it again, she broke the key of her Land Rover in the lock and now she's stuck, I'll be glad when she gets her new little car then at least if something goes wrong its fixed under warranty. Anyway she rang the local Land Rover agent to get a whole new steering lock and ignition switch and they told her to get a locksmith to remove the broken key and cut a new one, so that has saved her quite a bit of money for parts.

Because your mum can't start her car she is stuck at home and we've got Mia for the day. I was getting something out of the cupboard and she came wandering up to see what I was doing, so I said “Hello Mia,” she replied as clear as day, “Hello.” My heart just skipped a beat, it sounded so sweet. She really is a lovely little girl Merlin, I know you would have loved her as much as everyone else. Molly loves her very much, but Molly plays a bit too rough for her at the moment.

Molly really loves annoying Melissa's cats, she chases them around the house and when they escape on top of a cupboard Molly looks up with a satisfied look on her face. But one little black and white cat Molly really likes her, the cat rubs up against Molly and Molly gives her a big lick. So funny.

I guess its time for you to go play with your buddies merlin and have some fun.

Never forget my boy, I love you so much.

You ever loving Daddy.

Good afternoon Merlin my so sweet and wonderful big boy. I'm late today because your mum, Mike and I went to the mall, to get a replacement laptop for your mum and we also ended up getting a new TV after the last one blew up. I had got use to watching the little 22 inch TV and now the new 42 inch will appear massive again. I also got a new cell phone, my old one is one of the touch screen type which I hate, I prefer one with buttons!

Your mum has tried to contact the car rental people to take her rented car back, but she can't get hold of them, perhaps she'll get it longer for free.

Its a bright sunny day, but very windy, I hate high winds I really do. But I reckon you could have a good run and play day chasing Spud. I really wish Molly was bigger and heavier because Spud takes advantage of her smaller size and is forever putting her down on the ground. She gives a good account of herself but she isn't big enough to do the same to Spud. I've got a good mind to get a boy GSD puppy and watch him grow to your size and knock Spud on his backside, but I doubt if your mum wants another puppy.

Your mum had a bit of a panic attack this morning, when she started the Land Rover it began to misfire badly. I told her it was raining heavy yesterday and it had got the ignition wet, in the end it cleared itself and began firing on all 8 cylinders. She does panic.

I guess its time for you to have some fun with your buddies.

I love you so much Merlin

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful big boy.

Its still dark here, but as far as I can see its very overcast again this morning so I don't think it wont be very warm today at all, but it might make a good run and play day for you my boy.

Its just turned 6am and I let the pack out. I don't know why he does it but Spud has always got to bark his head off, I chased him but when he stopped running he started barking again. I've said it before and I'll say it again, “At times Spud can be a really lovely boy, other times he can be a pain in the neck and this morning he was a pain in the neck. I went out there this morning to stop Bella and Hobo running up to the fence line again, Bella didn't want to come outside and Hobo snuck off somewhere, but he didn't go up to the fence line. Just as well, I'm fed up taking him to the vets to get stitched up! That boy really don't learn, and come to that neither does Bella. When he got really hurt last time Hobo had his muzzle on, the dogs next door must have torn it off of him when they attacked him, now I am not putting muzzles on either Bella or Hobo unless they muzzle their dogs next door, being muzzled Bella and Hobo can't protect themselves.

Molly can be a pain in the neck in the mornings, she has to say hello to everyone, including Bella who growls and snaps at her, this morning she was jumping over Bella, Hobo and Spud who had only just woken up who growled and snapped at her. I called her so she jumped up on my bed and said hello to me. At the moment she is laying under my desk trying to bite the reflection off of my watch. Daft dog! But she is sweet.

I guess its time for you to go play and have some fun with your buddies.

I love you so much Merlin and always will.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful big boy, I hope you are having lots and lots of fun with your buddies running and jumping and chasing and having a high old time.

Yesterday was even better then the day before, by about 10 or 11 am it was glorious outside, it was beautifully sunny and bright, no wind and very little if any cloud, but it wasn't too hot, it was just right. You could have played all day long, you could have chased Spud until you got fed up or simply wanted to go to sleep on my bed.

Its still dark here, it looks like its overcast, so I don't know yet what kind of day its going to be. I hope its like yesterday.

Tomorrow hopefully your mum can order her new car, then at least she's got something reliable and under manufacturers warranty, so if anything goes wrong with it, they fix it for free. I started your mums Land Rover, its got a beautiful V8 engine, it sounds like a V8 should do that, gorgeous V8 warble.

We have got to get a new TV, the one we bought just before Christmas went weird so it was sent back to the shop who sent it for repair about 3 or 4 weeks ago, they phoned yesterday and told your mum that they are giving her a refund as they are unable to repair it. I must admit I am impressed with their service.

I guess its time you went and had some fun with your buddies.

I love you my boy, and always will.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful big boy. I hope that you are having lots and lots of fun and games with your buddies AND your girlfriend Lady Zara.

Yesterday afternoon was gorgeous, it was so nice and warm in the sun, in fact it was bordering on hot. Yesterday though the pack drove me nuts with their barking, they barked at everything that moved, everyone and their granny decided to walk their dogs right in front of the property. They love playing outside but when they all start barking it its more then I can stand. They were told to go indoors and behave.

Today looks uncertain, it could be a day like yesterday or it could be pouring with rain any second. For now its very cloudy and no wind, the sun isn't breaking through the cloud. We'll see how it turns out, but for now it would make a brilliant run and play day for you my boy as its not too chilly, I suppose you could call it fresh. You could run and chase Spud as much as you liked.

Mia had some pictures taken at Kindergarten, she looks very unsure of herself, but she looks so beautiful Merlin. She turns so many heads, she is so gorgeous my boy. I'm going to scan them and post them for family to see.

Well I guess its time for you to go play with your buddies my sweet and wonderful big boy.

I love you and I miss you beyond words my boy, you will always be in my heart and soul.

Your ever loving Daddy

Good morning Merlin my sweet and wonderful big boy.

Yesterday afternoon was so nice and warm in the sun, I hope today will be the same So far this morning is very bright and sunny, no cloud and no wind, so with luck it will be like yesterday, nice and warm. The pack loved it outside yesterday, Molly and Spud were running and playing a usual, one thing I have noticed, although Spud can catch her in a straight line, she has learned to suddenly turn left or right throwing Spud off, she has also learned to use the undergrowth and bushes to throw him off. She's getting to be a clever little girl, a typical GSD. Molly sometimes has a really soft minute or two, I call her over to me and tell her “Who's a good girl Molly, who's a very good girl?” She nearly folds herself in half in her happiness. LOL she is so very sweet too Merlin.

Mike took your mums Land Rover to work yesterday to make sure the brakes are OK, he came him and said its fine. I checked out the master cylinder and it appears not to be leaking any more, THANKFULLY! Your mum has said that when she gets her new car I can have the Land Rover, wow that's good of her as I am putting most of the money up for her new car. Anything for a quiet life Merlin. I don't know how she is going to cope with her weekly shopping, she use to fill the back of the Land Rover and this new car has got nothing like the space. Oh well, its her choice.

I guess its time to go play my sweet and wonderful big boy with your buddies.

I love you so much Merlin, I hope you know this my boy.

Your ever loving Daddy.

Good morning my sweet and wonderful Merlin, hows my big boy today?

It another nothing day today, plenty of cloud but no wind thankfully, its also quite chilly. Last night was very cold, I let the pack out and as usual Molly and Spud came running in no problem and surprise surprise both Bella and Hobo came running in. I reckon it as too cold for them to sniff around for long.

Your mums car has FINALLY been repaired and the so called mechanic brought it to the house last night. Well, I want to check it out before your mum drives it. Your mum is so sick of the Land Rover she wants to buy another car, so I am giving her my Jaguar because I can't drive it any more, she can put that against a new car. She's rented a little Hyundai the past two weeks and she likes it so she wants to get one of those new. They are very good on petrol, 17 miles to the gallon for the Land Rover compared to 47 miles to the gallon for the Hyundai. Some customers are getting even better miles per gallon or so the salesman said, he mentioned 70 miles per gallon. With petrol prices as they are its going to save her a lot of money each month. I intend to keep the Land Rover, as too much money has been spent on it which we would never get back. It would make a good spare vehicle. The Hyundai is a little on the narrow side, I rode with your mum on Sunday to look at new cars, we were brushing shoulders! Mike my son said, “Its so narrow it should be driven on a motorcycle licence.”

I guess its time for you to go play with your buddies and have some fun.

I love you Merlin, so much my boy, I will never ever forget you or stop loving you.

Your ever loving Daddy.
